ASEAN NCAP results for the Honda HR-V are out- 4 stars for AOP and COP
The fifth SUV to run the gauntlet of tests set up by MIROS is the Honda HR-V, and it has scored excellent results for both Adult Occupant Protection and Child Occupant Protection.
For the Adult Occupant Protection test, the HR-V scored 15.21 points out of a possible 16, which is technically classified as a 5-star rating. However, in the lower spec HR-V models the lack of a seatbelt warning indicator drops the fifth star, although readers should be reminded that this is merely a result of the lack of indicator.
For the Child Occupant Protection test, the HR-V scored a 73% score in both variants of the HR-V tested, which is enough to warrant it a 4-star rating. This score is only bested by the Suzuki S-Cross and Honda CR-V, which managed an 81% and 86% score respectively for the Child Occupant Protection Test.
For those not in the know, the ASEAN NCAP is a regional collaboration, in partnership with Global NCAP. Naturally the cars we get in our region may not always have been tested by the Global NCAP, so one for the ASEAN region is a good step towards assessing the safety of cars. MIROS is supported by automotive associations from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Phillipines.
